Frontiers of the Roman Empire: A Social and Economic Study
Bisher € 29,02
BeschreibungAlthough one of the longest lasting in history, the ancient Roman empire had no fixed boundaries. However, Roman armies clearly reached certain points--which today we call frontiers--where they simply stopped advancing and annexing new territories. C.R. Whittaker examines the Roman frontiers both in terms of what they meant to the Romans and in the context of their military, economic, and social function. 55 illustrations.
PortraitC. R. Whittaker was university lecturer in classics and fellow of Churchill College at Cambridge University.
PressestimmenWhittaker has made the first systematic attempt to integrate the study of the Roman frontiers and imperial policy with that of the frontier economy and society. All those interested in Roman frontier studies and imperialism will be grateful for a book which discusses old questions along new lines and which raises new questions of general importance.
